Even the simplest of construction activity becomes complex around live rail. In addition to the obvious dangers of working near high speed locomotives, the care and concern for rail passengers and pedestrians adds to the importance of construction site management. In the interest of protecting the worker, passengers and pedestrians, the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) has implemented stringent regulations. For the average construction company, navigating the federal regulations and numerous site hazards can be daunting. The inherent impacts to cost effectiveness and efficiency of the project are abundant.
